Englandís Chris Simpson announces his retirement from squash

Englandís Chris Simpson has announced his retirement from professional squash with immediate effect.

Simpson, 32, turned professional in 2005 and captured his first PSA title in 2008. The former world No.20, who hails from Guernsey, represented England multiple times as both a junior and senior.

A four-time British National junior champion and European Under 19 champion, Simpson was part of the England team who claimed World Junior bronze in 2004 and most recently, the 2016 European Team Championship title.

Simpson said: ďItís been an amazing journey, but after over 14 hugely enjoyable years of professional squash I have now played my last tournament. I am excited for the next chapter as I start a Trainee Financial Planner role in January.

ďSo many people have helped me over the years, unfortunately, I canít list you all but you know who you are so... THANK YOU.Ē

David Campion, National Coach at England Squash said: "Chris has been an integral part of England Squash for over 20 years. He has represented his country successfully at both junior and senior level, and always given the very best account of himself.

"Chris has many friends in the world of squash, largely due to his great character. He is the utmost professional - one of the good guys, very fair on court and always played with great spirit.

"On behalf of England Squash, we wish him all the very best with his new career and will miss him."
